Antonio Conte may have to choose between Tottenham Hotspur securing a January transfer for Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic or Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar, according to reports. Calciomercato.
Conte is keen to see Spurs bolster their attack with a move to sign Viola striker Vlahovic next month. The Serbian has had an intense season so far having scored 16 goals in just 18 Serie A games. He averages one successful goal every 100 minutes.
But Conte also wants to reunite with 2020/21 Serie A champion defender Skriniar in north London. The Italian has marked the Slovakian centre-back, like Vlahovic, as one of his specific targets for the winter sale. But he will struggle to sign both in January.
Tottenham assured Conte he would have money to spend in the mid-season when they hired the 52-year-old. Sun It is even reported that Chairman Daniel Levy is willing to pay a fine of 150 million pounds to turn the club’s situation around after Nuno Espirito Santo’s tenure.
Conte has brought Spurs from 10th to 7th after five games in charge. The north London side also played three times less than rivals Arsenal in fourth place.
Tottenham have also kept two clean sheets and scored nine times in Conte’s five games. But they need a mistake from Alisson in their second game against Liverpool on Sunday, having wasted so many opportunities after Harry Kane ended his six-match drought.
Tottenham could force Conte to choose between Vlahovic or Skriniar transfers
Tottenham can now force Conte to choose where he needs to strengthen most: the striker with Vlahovic scoring for free for Fiorentina or the former Inter Milan defender Skriniar.
Conte led the Nerazzurri to the Scudetto last season with Skriniar helping to keep 12 clean sheets in 32 games. He helped the San Siro team eliminate 6 teams this term.
A fee in that area alone, would come at a premium if Conte also asked Tottenham to sign Vlahovic. Gianluca Di Marzio Fiorentina want 80 million euros (£68 million) for the 21-year-old.
